Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint glass.
A - A rigorous pour yields a 3 to four finger head that is quite nice and goes down slowly. The initial head leaves some lacing, but the head is pretty much nonexistent after that. Color is clear amber.
S - Smells of wintry spices. But not too strong. I get a lot of alcohol on the nose.
T - Starts off spicy and finishes pretty dry but not bitter. I don't really get any spices but I do get a mild herbal note from the honey. The alcohol on the nose doesn't translate into the taste.
M - Medium bodied with light carbonation. Good for the style.
O - A nice winter warmer, but some of the flavors are a little strong whereas others are a little too weak.
